Featured Speaker: Antonio Cotroneo, Director of Technical Content Strategy, OmniSci
In response to the growing threat of wildfires, on June 30th, 2021 the current administration assembled Governors from Western states, Cabinet officials, and various partners to discuss ways to protect communities across the country from wildfires and their devastating impacts strengthening fire prevention, preparedness, mitigation, and response efforts, including a need to enhance the utilization of data and technology to protect communities.
This presentation will explore how geospatial companies like OmniSci can play a critical role in understanding factors contributing to wildfires, their associated risks, and impacts on communities across the Western United States, Canada, and beyond. Specifically, Antonio will examine the probability of four and eight-foot flames across California and the cross-section of electrical transmission lines, street networks, building footprints, and data representing vulnerable populations living and working in those spaces.
